Great Shot! Courts

Imagine stepping out your back door and getting your own home court advantage! Custom-built to the size and sports lifestyle that suits your home, family and friends of all ages would play sports and games of all kinds for countless hours! Some playing seriously, but most just playing for some serious fun and exercise!

Back yard multi-game courts are an energizing and valuable addition to any home, providing a safe, durable, attractive and maintenance-free court surface that easily transforms from basketball games to pickle ball or tennis matches, to roller hockey games and virtually every sport in between!

The traction-maximizing Suspended Modular Court surfaces offered by Great Shot! Courts not only provide terrifically consistent ball playability for every sport but also feature Advanced Impact Relief Technology, which reduces the strain on ligaments and joints that is typically associated with sports play, actually making these courts more “comfortable” to play on.

Constructed using the same durable polymers found in another Great Shot! Courts product, RevTek Garage Flooring, these courts are tough enough to withstand everything from a game of Badminton to the weight of an automobile. The all-weather interlocking tiles are available in a rainbow of colors so courts can either be colorized to blend with the surrounding landscape or to match the vibrant colors of a favorite sports team or school!

Fully customizable batting cages and putting greens are built to match their owner’s desirability of play and appearance—terrific for serious pros and serious hacks alike who look to improve their swing.
Built to virtually any size, appearance, location and landscape, Sports Settings by Great Shot! Courts provide homeowners with the luxury and freedom of back yard fun, play and exercise.

If you have a clay court, whether a club or private home, we can partner with Lee Tennis, manufacturers of Har-Tru, to do a facility analysis survey. This goes well beyond looking at the court surface, but is an all-inclusive plan, looking at irrigation, lighting, nets and posts, and the entire facility.
